Hi David:

It turns out there there are a number of different voltage standards.  Anywhere between 3.3 Volts for the DAGR to 10 
Volts (and higher) for many surveying GPS receivers like the Ashtech Z12
I've tested a number of them with some data at:

The Motorola hockey puck was NOT designed for much more than 5 Volts, it's an anomaly, most antennas work over a wide 
range of DC voltages.

Have Fun,

Brooke Clarke
